istopenaton of the Bank.
. The Bank of Gettysburg, on Mon
day last, subpended specie payments on
all sums over five dollars. That this
step was occasioned by any want of
solvency in the Bank, no one supposes;
for„that it is one of the best condition
ed institutions of the kind in the coun
try, the politic need not be told. But
a general Suspension throughout this
and other States haying occurred on
Saturday, it was thought best by the
officers of the Bank to prevent, by a
partial suspension, temporarily, the
drainage of its Rpeci e, which otlt'erwiso
wouldlurve been carried by the brokers
to the eities, from whicl no supply
could again be had, and thus our com
munity would be stripped of even the
small change necessary in ordinary busi
:lass transactions. The step,
Citellnlidaneel, appears to be generally
And here let us make a suggestiob.
If the public will meet the Bank half
way—if the silver and small change
which it will furnish in change of five
dollar bills, be kept actually in circula

be had for thepurposes of the commu-

"In what lit4ay it is intended to re
lease the Banks and the community
does not seent fo have been fully deter
mined. It is said on the streets that
the Legislature is to legalize the suspeu
sion ; but this idea is surely not serious
ly entertained. It i' hardly probable
that the Legislature will attempt to in
terfere between the Banks and their
creditors, with whom they have made
contracts to do what they have failed
to perform. Indeed these relations are
protected by the Constitution of the
United States, to the effect that no
Legislature can pass laws impairing
the ohligittion ofcontracts. Then, again,
it is said, the Legislature is to do no
more than to repeal so much of the gen
eral law as requires assignment in case
of failure to pay, in order that -the
Banks may continue to conduct their
own affairs until the next Legislature
shall have time to deliberate ob the
whole subject. Should the suspension
prove permanent for weeks or months,
the considerations which will present
themselves to the Legislature will be of
the most serious character. We have
do idea that a Legislature with but a
week to exist can accomplish the nixes-
SHIT work, and we regret that the Gov
ernor has called the present Legislature
at this time. it would have been wiser
in ths o llanks to have trasted themselves
in the hands of the peophi until attef
the October election, and placed them
selves before a Legislature with suffici
ent time at its command to give the
subject that consideration which its
magnitude will surely demand. We
have no special confidence in the policy
of assignments; the experience of the
country is against it. Institutions so
disposed of, have usually been exhaust
ed by delay and contingent expenses,
until the honest creditors have lost all.
If the present Legislature should TC•
move this feature of the law of 18,50,
and stop at that, it might be well."

The Wilmot leaders are iikard up"
for capital. Every sanceeding day his
prospects have been acquiring a more
gloomy look, and hence we see a new,
bat very shallow, game on the chess
board. The last Star copies from the
Philadelphia Sun—now Wilmot's lead
ing organ—a story in which an attempt
is made to create the belief that a secret
political Catholic association exists in
Philadelphia, entitled "Molly Maguire."
The yarn is so bald that the more de
cent papers of the opposition do not
The Star of this place is the only print
in which ice have seen the Sax's story
paraded—and the ISTar's fondness for
.things we need not attempt to show.
But it is well that the falsehood was
started so early. Time has been had
to refute it. P. W. Conroy and lid
ward W. Power, gentlemen 'whom we
know, personally, to be men of honor
and veracity, and whose names are
given in connection with this " Molly
Maguire," or second "Peg Beatty,"
business, denounce it as a vile slander,
and hold up its authors as wilful and
deliberate falsifiers of the truth. So
falls another baseless and badly gotten
up political lie.
"Mr. (hibernator and Mr. Russell have
yet to learn that there is ;many a slip between
the cup and the lip."—Slar.
sir The editor of the Star is certainly
very much mistaken in supposing that
I have yet to learn that "there is many
a slip between the cup and the lip."
In the days of the Honorable., King
and Shreiner, I learned that there was
'a. slip even after it passed the lip. At
that time we had "wolves in sheep's
clothing." There were several Delegates
who pretended to be friendly to me and
who were instructed to go for me, for
the office of Register & Recorder, that
voted for Shreiner, for the express pur
pose of electing King. We have now
a WoLv out in his true colors, and I
hope ho will be able to out-run any sheep
in the fold of the Know Nothing, Ame
rican, Union, Black Republican party;
and he shall have my hearty support.
So the editor of the Star need not tear
his shirt about it. JAS. RUSSELL.
